Making the nutritious, sustainable and uniquely Nordic grain more available around the world.

Quality is in the details.

Oats have been a dietary sta­ple in Nordic cul­ture for as long as we can remem­ber, with the knowl­edge of how to cul­ti­vate and har­vest the finest oats passed on from gen­er­a­tion to gen­er­a­tion. Over time, we have learned how to make the best use of our unique Nordic con­di­tions and cli­mate, con­stant­ly refin­ing our meth­ods every step of the way.

Nordic Oats is a coop­er­a­tion con­sist­ing of some 20 Finnish and Swedish mem­ber com­pa­nies, with the core mis­sion to pro­mote the unique­ness of Nordic oats inter­na­tion­al­ly. As more and more peo­ple around the world are start­ing to see the many ben­e­fits of this sus­tain­able and nutri­tious grain, our belief firm­ly stays the same – when it comes to mak­ing the finest oats, qual­i­ty tru­ly is in the details.

Why Nordic Oats?

Unique conditions & climate

With its ide­al tem­per­a­tures and long sum­mer days, cou­pled with its clean water, air and soil, the Nordics have the ide­al cli­mate for pro­duc­ing oats of the high­est quality.

Sustainable farming & food safety

High hygien­ic stan­dards and low lev­els of pes­ti­cides and fer­til­iz­ers – Nordic farm­ing is char­ac­ter­ized by hav­ing one of the world’s most sus­tain­able agri­cul­ture prac­tices, as well as one of the strictest when it comes to food safety.

Health & nutrition

Healthy diets have long been a tra­di­tion in the Nordics. The inher­ent­ly nutri­tious oats – rich in fibers, pro­tein and beta-glu­cans – have always been a cor­ner­stone of that tradition.

Attractive reputation

With its ever-increas­ing pop­u­lar­i­ty and recog­ni­tion as a healthy and nutri­tion­al food prod­uct with low cli­mate impact, oats and oat-based prod­ucts are high­ly attrac­tive on the inter­na­tion­al export market.

Food Ingre­di­ents Europe 2022

Between the 6–8 of Decem­ber one of the largest fairs with focus on ingre­di­ents was held in Paris. Nordic Oats was present by five com­pa­nies. In three big exhi­bi­tion-halls you meet all from multi­na­tion­al com­pa­nies to small­er local and nation­al com­pa­nies. In the mid­dle of this fan­tas­tic mix of com­pa­nies and peo­ple one could find the pavil­ions of Busi­ness Swe­den and Busi­ness Fin­land, fac­ing each oth­er, offer­ing Nordic oats and oats-products

To reach out with the mes­sage of the Nordic Oats, a sem­i­nar was held with the title “Nordic oats – from seed and sci­ence to sus­tain­abil­i­ty”. Three speak­ers talked on the impor­tance of research to even bet­ter ben­e­fit from all the health advan­tages and nutri­tion­al con­tent of oats, the impor­tance of right pro­cess­ing to ensures deli­cious oats and on the sus­tain­able Nordic farm­ing. No one could doubt the mas­sive and deep com­pe­tence on oats at the stage. And when a ques­tion was raised on the what real­ly makes the Nordic oats so good — the answer was giv­en – good vari­eties high on pro­teins, fibers, good fat and antiox­i­dants com­bined with clean soil, water, knowl­edge­able farm­ers and inno­v­a­tive industry.
